1. What is the difference between BLEND 43 and NESCAFÉ Gold?
Both NESCAFÉ BLEND 43 and NESCAFÉ Gold are instant coffees, the main difference is usually how the coffee beans are processed. BLEND 43 is made from a spray drying process where evaporation transforms liquid coffee into fine powder. Most of our NESCAFÉ Gold instant coffees are freeze dried (with exceptions of NESCAFÉ Gold Short Black & Smooth). With freeze drying, coffee extract is frozen to -40°C and cut into granules. As a result, the quality of the aroma and flavour is protected due to the low temperatures and gentle drying conditions. Our NESCAFÉ CAFÉ MENU and NESCAFÉ Gold café inspired sachets do not contain freeze dried coffee.
2. What’s the caffeine content of your NESCAFÉ coffees?
Our NESCAFÉ instant coffees (NESCAFÉ BLEND 43 and NESCAFÉ Gold) contain between 50mg and 90 mg per 2g serve.
3. What’s the caffeine content of your NESCAFÉ CAFÉ MENU sachet Coffees?
Our coffees range in caffeine content between 50mg and 100mg per serve. The only exception is the Cappuccino variant, which contains approximately 5mg of caffeine per 15g serve.
4. What decaffeination process do you use?
We use the water method for decaffeination in our NESCAFÉ decaffeinated coffees sold in Australia and New Zealand. No chemicals are used during our process.
5. Where do your coffee beans come from?
The beans chosen for our NESCAFÉ coffees come from all over the world including Brazil, Colombia, Papua New Guinea, Kenya, Vietnam, Costa Rica. Our skilled team of blending experts ensure that the quality and flavour of the coffee we produce is consistent, year in year out, despite all the variations that can occur from year to year, region to region, and bean to bean.
